Easy DIY lace flower vase & 10 spray painting tips

Hello friends! I am here today to share with you my latest DIY project; this easy, inexpensive and super cute lace flower vase.

Have you ever seen these tall, slim containers at your local thrift stores, flea markets or garage sales? Did you know that you can make them into beautiful flower vases with a little lace fabric and some paint? This project is so easy even my 11 year old daughter could do it if the spray paint that I used wasn’t so smelly.img-1235

I recently picked up these two rather boring containers at our local Salvation Army thrift store for a couple of dollars a piece. I decided for this particular tutorial that I would like to work on the terracotta wine cooler on the left-hand side, so please ignore the container on the right for the time being . It will be getting a makeover soon, which I hope to share with you in the near future.

 

Here’s how I transformed my terracotta container into a flower vase.

 

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • terracotta wine cooler or tall paintable vase
  • lace fabric
  • dark gray craft paint
  • white acrylic Gesso
  • Martha Stewart’s Sharkey Gray latex paint or a light gray-taupe paint color of your choice
  • Mod Podge or clear acrylic spray
  • spray adhesive
  • white spray paint (I used Design Master Color Tool spray paint in Vanilla-This is the best spray paint EVER!)
  • ruler, scissors and papertowel
  • 400 grit sandpaper
  • painters face mask or respirator, old clothing with long sleeves/pants, goggles and latex gloves
  • glass canning jar, empty pasta sauce jar or clear glass vase
  • paint tray or paper plate, newspaper, cardboard, and paint brushes

 

Directions:

Give your container a wipe-down with a damp cloth before painting or run it through the dishwasher and leave it to dry thoroughly. If your container has any gloss to it you will want to give it a light sanding with 400 grit sandpaper before painting to give the surface some “tooth” so that the paint with stick. If your surface is very glossy you will want to paint it with a bonding primer before proceeding with the rest of this tutorial. img_4568

Mix up an even amount of dark gray craft paint and white gesso in a paint tray. Paint your container with two coats of your paint mixture allowing each coat to dry thoroughly before re-coating.

img_4578

Mix up some Sharkey Gray paint with gesso in a 75/25 ratio. Using a slightly damp paper towel, dab lightly into your paint and then wipe the excess off onto another paper towel. Pounce your papertowel randomly over your entire vase leaving some of the dark gray paint showing through. A thin, light coat of paint will look the best. REMEMBER: You can always do touch-ups with more dark gray paint to cover up any problem areas.

img_4573

Now for your lace fabric. You should easily be able to find lace fabric at your local fabric store or thrift store. Maybe you even have a piece of lace clothing in your closet that you will never ever wear again. Why not use it to make flower vases, pillows or art for your home?

So where did my lace fabric come from? It’s hard to tell in the photo above but this lace fabric is actually a pair of sheer, crop lace leggings. No, they aren’t mine! I wouldn’t be caught dead in them!

Actually, my daughter got these pants as a part of a $5.00 Surprise Bag from Ardene’s (a jewelry and accessory store) a couple of weeks ago. I told her that there was no way that she would be leaving the house in these see-thru lace pants! I quickly tossed them into the Goodwill bag and forgot about them until a couple of days ago when I happened to come across them again. When I saw them a light bulb went off in my head. What if I used them for my spray painting projects? Hey, why not?

Just so you know, when my daughter came home last night I asked her what she thought of my new lace vase. She said that she really liked it. You should have seen the look on her face when I explained to her that I used the pants that she got in her Surprise Bag to paint my vase. Haha!

img_4598

Moving on…Next, measure around the entire width of your vase. You will want this measurement to be fairly exact. You do not want to have any overlap of your fabric otherwise your pattern will not be consistent. In my case, my lace fabric was stretchy so I cut it a little short knowing that I could stretch it across to fit around the vase.

Then measure the height of your vase. Here you don’t need to be as exact as any excess can be easily tucked into the opening or underneath the vase.

Cut out your fabric rectangle and wrap it around your vase to make sure it fits. Trim as necessary. img_4595

Take your fabric and spray adhesive outside and also put on your latex gloves and a painter’s mask. Lightly coat your fabric on one side with your spray adhesive. Wrap your fabric around your vase smoothing it as you go. NOTE:  If your fabric is not lined up how you would like it to be, you can easily reposition it or start over.

You are now ready to spray paint!

10-spray-painting-tips

 

Here is my list of 10 spray painting tips. These are tips that I have found to work well for me. They are by no means the only way to spray paint an item.

 

  1. Prepare your spray paint can by giving it a good shaking for at least two minutes.
  2. Protect your work surface by covering it with a large piece of cardboard.
  3. Elevate the item you are painting by raising it slightly off of the cardboard with scrap pieces of wood or old boxes.
  4. Put on your safety gear (painter’s mask/ventilator, long sleeves and pants, goggles and latex gloves). Be sure to work outdoors or in a very well ventilated area. Your health and safety is the most important thing when spray painting!
  5. Optional: Attach your spray paint trigger handle to your spray paint can (make sure your spray can nozzle is pointing outwards). I use Rust-Oleum’s Comfort Grip Spray Painting ToolIt makes painting so much easier and saves your fingers from cramping up!
  6. Give your paint can a shake again right before use and then test out your paint color on your cardboard to make sure it is the right color and that the spray can is working correctly.
  7. Keep your spray paint can at least 12-16 inches away from the item you are painting.
  8. Squeeze your paint handle while moving your arm back in forth in a uniform motion coating one side of your item evenly before moving on to the next. Preferably work from top to bottom and shake your paint can in between coats.
  9. 1-3 light even coats of paint will give you better results than one thick coat of paint. It will also prevent runs and drips from occurring.
  10. Leave your project to dry for at least 10-15 minutes before re-coating or handling. If it feels dry to the touch it is ready to re-coat. Preferably leave it to dry overnight before coating it with two to three coats of topcoat for protection.

img_4602

The photo above shows my lace fabric after 2 light coats of white spray paint and right before I removed it from the vase. As you can see the Design Master spray paint is very fine in consistency. Had I used regular spray paint my lace fabric would have been a lot more opaque at this point.

img_4604

Once you are finished painting your vase, let it dry for 5-10 minutes before carefully removing the lace. Smile to yourself at the great job that you did!

To finish off your vase you can sand any raised edges with your 400 grit sandpaper to give your vase a distressed look. You will also want to coat your vase with at least 2 coats of matte Mod Podge or clear acrylic sealer for protection.

img_4643

NOTE: The outside of this vase should be spot-cleaned only. I would not advise you to submerse it in water. For my particular vase, the inside was not glazed so I chose to add in a separate container to hold my flowers and water. I ended up finding the perfect-sized canning jar in my cupboard. You could also use a pasta jar or a tall glass vase which can be found in any floral department of any major department store. The great thing about adding a separate container to the inside of your vase is that it can easily be removed for cleaning without ruining the finish on your vase.

img_4747-2

Your lace flower vase is now ready for use. All you need to do is add your favorite flowers, sit back and admire how great it looks.

img_4745-2

I just love how my vase turned out! What do you think?

img_4741-2

Have you ever used lace and spray paint before to transform something in your home? If you have I would love to hear about it. If you haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, I hope that you decide to give this little DIY project a go sometime.

 

Have a great night!

More of my absolute favorite products for furniture refinishing

I am sorry that it has been so quiet around here lately. As I mentioned in my last post, a few days ago I injured my back while lifting a piece of furniture out of my husband’s truck and I haven’t been feeling well since. The buffet that I was lifting was not overly heavy and I have lifted other pieces of furniture before with no problems. This time, I was fine until I went to put my end of the buffet down and then I felt a sharp pain in the middle of my back near my spine. I didn’t realize that I injured my back until an hour later when I knew I had done something wrong! I had thought that maybe I had just twisted things the wrong way.

Since then, the pain has been getting progressively worse so I have been living off pain killers which makes me a little drowsy. I also can’t sit in one position for too long so sitting and writing is a very uncomfortable. I have had a sore back before but this is way beyond that!

For that reason, today’s post will be a little shorter than usual. I am sure that after a couple more days rest I will be feeling better and will be back to my usual activities.

Have you ever injured your back before? What things did you do that helped you to feel better?

 

 

I had mentioned in PART ONE of my favorite products for furniture refinishing HERE that I planned to share some more products with you in the near future. So I am here today to share four more products that I love to use when working on transforming a piece of furniture. These products will help you to not only achieve a professional look and feel to your furniture piece but they will help to make your life a little easier throughout the entire process.

 

This first product you may already own or you may have seen it on TV or in home improvement stores. It’s Frog Tape.

 

FrogTape 1358463 Multi-Surface Painting Tape, Green, 0.94-Inch Wide by 60 Yards Long

 

Before becoming a Frog Tape advocate, I used to buy the regular blue or green painter’s tape. I found that the regular tape kept the paint from bleeding under the area that I had taped off only some of the time. It was a hit or miss! Also, when I would remove the tape from my piece of furniture, part of my newly applied paint would come off with it no matter how gently I removed the tape. I felt like screaming so loud that the neighbors would hear me when that would happen. I was so frustrated! It’s not like you can easily touch things up so it won’t be noticeable at that point!

Can you relate to this problem when using regular painter’s tape?

 

One day I was in the painting department at Home Depot picking up some rollers and brushes and came across Frog Tape. First, the green container stood out to me and I had remembered seeing a commercial on TV about it. I was about to grab a roll off the shelf and then I noticed the price!  A little more than I was used to paying for painter’s tape! I decided to give it a try anyway. Maybe it would work as well as the commercial said it would.

The first time I tried Frog tape, I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked. Even though it seemed like the tape didn’t stick firmly to the edges of the wood, there was no bleeding of paint underneath at all. The edges came out clear and crisp. The tape also came off really easily and didn’t pull off any of my freshly applied paint. So amazing! I was jumping for joy at that point!

If you are still using regular painter’s tape, you may want to give Frog Tape a try. Seriously, I will never go back to the old painter’s tape again, even when painting walls in my house. It saves me so much time and frustration!

 

Beauti-Tone Latex Glazing Liquid

 

Another favorite of mine is Beauti-Tone Latex Glazing Liquid from Home Hardware. I use it every time I prepare a colored glaze to apply on the piece of furniture I am working on.

If you haven’t used a glazing medium before, you mix it with either latex paint or acrylic paint. I usually mix mine as 8 parts glazing liquid to one part paint. Glazing liquid helps to give you more time to manipulate your color on your furniture piece so that it doesn’t dry too quickly. When mixed with paint, it also helps to bring out the details in carved appliques and chunky moldings.

Glazing medium can be found in many different brands and at almost any hardware store. This glazing medium is my favorite and here in Canada it is only $14.99 per can.

 

 

Shur-Line 04970C 4-Inch Foam Mini Roller Refills, Contractor Pack of 6

 

I use foam rollers exclusively for painting furniture along with foam brushes. I know some people swear by painting furniture with a paint brush. I just have had the best results when using these 4″ foam rollers.

These rollers don’t leave marks in my finish, like using a regular paint brush would, and they leave the surface of the wood even and smooth. After applying a paint finish with these rollers the surface is very easy to sand smooth with almost no effort.

This brand, Shur-line is my favorite because it doesn’t leave roller “bits” in my paint and it leaves a silky-smooth finish on my painted surface. I have purchased foam rollers from the Dollar Store before just to compare, these Shur-Line rollers are worth paying extra for!

 

 

General Finishes High Performance Varnish

 

Finally, my last favorite item is General Finishes High Performance Varnish in Satin. This is my all-time favorite topcoat for the furniture that I refinish. It can be found at Lee Valley following the link above.

This top coat is very durable so it perfect for table-tops and other furniture pieces that will get lots of use. It is also non-yellowing so it will not yellow your light-colored furniture like polyurethane coatings will.

To apply this coating it is best to use a brush. The best technique that works for me is to load a healthy amount of this topcoat onto your brush and apply it to your surface in a straight line, each time taking up more coating on your brush from your can. Apply this finish quickly and avoid brushing over the area more than twice. You want a fairly thick, even coat on the surface as this coating will self-level. You will be left with very little, if at all brush marks on your piece if you use this technique.

This top coat also dries very quickly so another coat can be applied about 30 minutes later. I always sand lightly with 400 grit sandpaper in between coats which makes the resulting finish feel like velvet. You want to apply at least 3 coats of this finish to your piece in places that won’t see much wear and 4-5 coats on table tops and other areas that will see the most wear.

My last tip is to let this finish cure at least 3 weeks before placing heavy objects on top of it and at least a week before placing light objects on top. I know it seems like it is a long time to wait but if you do you will be left with a very durable finish that will withstand every day use.

 

Well there you have it. If you haven’t tried these products before I hope you decide to give them a try. They make furniture painting and refinishing that much easier.

Where can you find out more about these products? For most of the products I have mentioned, you can just click on the link below each of the photos to go to Amazon (my affiliate sponsor),  Home Hardware or Lee Valley. For some of these products, you should also be able to find them at your local hardware store.

Well, I am off to rest my back. I hope to be back here in full force in 2-3 days. By then I should hopefully be back working on my projects again. Thanks for being so patient with me in the meantime. I appreciate that you take the time to stop by and read my posts.

 

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Some of my absolute favorite products for furniture refinishing

Ever since I have been thinking about writing this post, I have had the lyrics from The Sound of Music’s “My Favorite Things” song stuck in my head… and I can’t seem to shake them. Haha! I am really aging myself, aren’t I?

 

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
           Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eye lashes
           Silver white winters that melt into spring
           These are a few of my favorite things!   ….La La La La….

 

Um, ya!  I am such a dork!

 

Anyway…I digress.

Thrifty Dresser Transformation

 

Recently, I have been working on making over a couple of pieces of furniture and I decided that I really want to share with you some of the products I use whenever I work on a furniture transformation. Not only do these products make my life a little easier, but they help me to create a professional looking finish every time I paint.

I am not sure if you have had a chance to try out some of these products before, but I highly recommend them. Maybe, they can help to make furniture painting an enjoyable experience for you too!

 

So, on to the first product…

 

 Circa 1850 Soft Strip 182044 Gallon

 

You may be able to relate to this one.

If you ever have had to strip a piece of furniture before, you will know that it can be a messy, stinky and sometimes a very frustrating job. Most paint strippers take a long time to work, or don’t work at all. They can also only be used in a very well ventilated area outdoors because they are so toxic and the clean-up is a real P-I-T-A!

My absolute favorite go-to paint stripper is Circa 1850 Soft Strip Stripper. It works like a charm for me and a little goes a long way with this stuff! I have had this bottle above for quite some time and it is still at least half full and I have used it on at least 2 buffet tops and a dresser.

Another huge bonus with this stripper is that it is made without extremely toxic Methylene Chloride or any caustics. It is not non-toxic, but it is a big improvement to regular strippers. It has a pleasant odor (no chemical smell) and it doesn’t make me sick or give me a headache like other paint strippers do (I seem to have developed sensitivity to chemical smells over the years because of the toxic cleaning products I used to use).

Please remember though, when using this product, you must still wear eye protection, a face mask, gloves, preferably the nitrile kind, and long sleeves/long pants. Keep in mind that this stripper is supposed to take paint off so you can imagine what it could do to your skin or your eyes if you get some on you! It would also be best to work with it near an open window or in your garage where there is some ventilation. Also, if you are making over an older piece of furniture, make sure you test for lead paint before stripping the paint or even sanding. Your health and your safety is the most important thing!

Finally, I have found that this paint stripper also has an easy clean-up. So helpful!

I won’t get into details right now about its application, but please stay tuned for my upcoming tutorial on how I strip furniture.

 

 

img_3263Home Hardware’s, Natura Safe Prep

 

As you may know, the majority of second-hand furniture that can be found today is very grimy and is covered in oils and other nasties that can cause paint not to stick, especially if it is a vintage or antique piece of furniture. Most people regularly use TSP (trisodium phosphate) as a preparation before painting their walls or pieces of furniture. The only problem with using TSP is that it is toxic to the environment.

I have found a safe alternative. It is called Natura Safe Prep. This stuff is the goods for sure! It is safe for the environment, safe to use, odorless and you don’t have to rinse it off like you do with TSP. It is also very affordable at only $4.99 for a Litre here in Canada. A little goes a long way with this stuff. I just put a couple of tablespoons of Safe Prep into a litre of warm water, wash my furniture piece with a rag, let everything dry and I am ready to paint. So easy!

 

 

Glidden Company GL3250 QT Gripper Gray Interior / Exterior Primer

 

Another product that I use on a regular basis is Glidden Gripper Primer. This is a wonderful bonding primer that also blocks stains. I use it on everything, even pieces of furniture with a very shiny finish. I just give the piece I am painting an all-over light sanding before applying this primer to give the wood a bit of “tooth”. To-date, I have never had a problem with my paint chipping off or the paint not sticking. I usually apply two coats of this primer, letting it dry well in between coats.

If I am working on a few pieces where I will be painting a similar color, I have my primer tinted closely to whatever color I am planning on painting. My favorite color for tinting is Behr Dark Gray. I can post the exact formula here if you like later today. Just let me know if you are interested!

 3M SandBlaster 20400 Between Coats Sandpaper, 9-Inch x 11-Inch, 400-Grit

 

What’s next? Carrying on!

Let me count the ways I love my 400 grit sandpaper! It is ah-mazing! This is a large part of why my finished pieces of furniture are as smooth as velvet or as soft as a baby’s little feet.  If you haven’t ever used 400 grit sandpaper to sand your furniture before, you are seriously missing out!

I like to sand with 400 grit sandpaper between each and every layer or finish that I apply, whether it be when I am priming, painting or topcoating. I especially like the 3M Sandblaster sandpaper above as it makes light work of what you are sanding.

What I like to do is take one of the sanding sheets out of the package, fold it in half down the middle and then in half again. I then tear the sheet into 4 where I have folded. Lastly, I wrap one of the torn sanding sheets around a rectangular sanding block. This makes a perfect sanding block which works wonderfully to sand the flat parts of your furniture piece like the top, the sides or the doors. I find this method is also cheaper than buying multiple sanding blocks because they wear out really quickly. This way I can re-use my sanding block just by adding new sandpaper around it. Don’t throw out your old sanding blocks! With some new sandpaper, they can be used again and again!

 Hyde Tools 44280 Tack Cloth, 18Ó

 

What also helps to give your piece of furniture a flawless finish?

Tack cloths do! These little pieces of gooey cloth work perfectly for removing all of your sanding dust, bits of fuzz or any other nasties that will get stuck in your paint finish. They are so inexpensive (only $1.50 each) and find that I usually use at least two tack cloths per piece of furniture that I am working on. I tend to use one for the primer and paint layers and then I reserve a brand new one for the top coat layers.

I can’t say enough good things about tack cloths! To me, they are essential!

Lastly, I have been buying these inexpensive dollar store paint brushes for at least 6 months now. These are not just any paint brushes from the dollar store. Why do I love them so much? First of all these paint brushes barely shed as compared to regular cheap paint brushes. I can finish an entire project and these brushes haven’t lost a single bristle or the odd time it only happens once. There is almost nothing worse than painting and having to pick bristles out of your newly painted finish.

These paint brushes are also super soft and very easy to wash. I love to use them for applying gel medium to my photo transfers (I use the biggest brush), applying Mod Podge to a finished project, doing touch-ups to my paint finish or for cutting-in on a piece of furniture before rolling the rest with a roller. Because these brushes are so soft, there are barely any brush strokes in my paint finish.

You can see my love for these brushes in my previous posts below.

Where can you find out more about these products? For most of the products I have mentioned, you can just click on the link below each of the photos to go to Amazon (my affiliate sponsor) or Home Hardware or you should also be able to find them at your local hardware store.

I hope you found this review of my favorite products helpful. I really wish when had I started painting way back when that someone had told me what products they like to use because it would have saved me buying a lot of crappy things that didn’t work worth a darn. What a lot of money I wasted!

So please stay tuned for more product reviews. I plan to share some more of my other favorite products with you again soon.

 

UPDATE: To read PART TWO of this post please click here.

 

I would love to hear if you have used any of these products in the past and whether you like them or not. Also,  if you have any of your own favorites, we would love to hear about them!

 

As always, thank you for all your support, comments, Facebook likes, tweets, and pins this week.

 

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
